People in the eastern German city of Erfurt have begun mourning the victims of a shooting at a high school on Friday that left 18 people dead, including the 19-year-old gunman.
Candles and flowers were placed outside the Johann Gutenberg Gymnasium school where the shootings happened, and at the city's Cathedral nearby.
Mourners packed a memorial service for the victims at Andreaskirche a few hundred metres (yards) from the school.
Police said the gunman, a former student at the school who was expelled a few weeks ago, sprayed gunfire in the halls of the school, killing two girls, 13 teachers, a school secretary and a policeman who responded to an alert by the school janitor.
The gunman killed himself as special police commandoes stormed the building. Police did not identify the suspected killer, citing the need to shield his family.
Erfurt is a city of about 200-thousand people located in former communist East Germany.
